January 23rd, 2018 |

Boston is not only one of our nation’s earliest settlements, but it is now a prime real estate investment location and one of the most cultured cities on the East coast. Boston’s many diverse and charming neighborhoods have made a name for themselves as a wonderful place for both families and singles to thrive.

Looking to make an investment in this ever-growing seaside city? Check out the following neighborhoods, currently ranked as the top three Boston neighborhoods for investment properties.

This southwest Boston neighborhood is known for its sustainable efforts and environmentally-friendly attitude. And for investors looking for property with maximum returns, this is great news. Property value has been steadily climbing in Jamaica Plain as long-time city dwellers tire of concrete and yearn for green streets. While the property value here is already considerable, it is still expected to be one of Boston’s quickest growing neighborhoods.

Nothing says ‘peace and quiet’ quite like a pad in Roslindale. Potential tenants and homeowners dream of the cozy, calm and safe streets found throughout this slice of city retreat. Its reputation for close neighborhood ties and strong local business presence also continue to encourage growth. And the best part? Investors can still find promising property management opportunities with great income potential—at a nominal price.
